    My four friends and I went to Tutti Santi in Glendale to celebrate our birthdays. It's a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. Of course, it was a Tuesday night so I'm not sure what the weekends are like. They graciously moved our table when we requested a little more room (we had presents). The servers were dressed very nice. They were polite, professional and attentative. The food was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions, a nice night out or Happy Hour.

    We live in the neighborhood and have dined here several times in the past. Seems as though business has suffered somewhat over the years due to slow economy and people not knowing about the location. We spoke to the bartender before being seated for dinner and he explained some of the changes, i.e. no brick oven pizzas anymore, no lunch hours anymore, etc. Unfortunately, the food was quite bland (very little or no seasoning) - and for the menu prices, would expect much more in the quality. It was also not inexpensive, but luckily we were in good company to make up for the less-than-impressive meal. Not sure how long we will wait before going back. Wish my review was better. We really want to see these neighborhood restaurants succeed.

    We had high hopes for Tutti Santi by Nina, Glendale. We made reservations for a Wednesday night, but they weren't really necessary. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was good, but no "wow" factor, as everything tasted a bit bland. All in all an OK spot.

    We live in the Arrowhead Ranch area and love Tutti Santi's. We were celebrating a special birthday with friends, so it was great to take them their for the first time. They loved it too. Quiet and great ambiance so you can carry on a nice conversation while dining. We love the outdoor patio during good weather days.

    We have been to this establishment many times and it was as good as the last time. The entree's were very good and quite tasty. We went to an early dinner so the place was kind of empty. That made it kind of romantic. I would go any of the Tutti Santi's in the metro area without pause. I do recommend them quite often. A good place with good food. Service was excellent as always.

    Tutti Santi continues to be v. good - the food is great, the service always great, and the front end and bar are great. So, go and enjoy! However, they do one thing that annoys me with their specials. They usually price them about $10 higher than the highest price point on the regular menu. If you ask, they will tell you the price but, if you don't, I bet most folks are surprised at the prices of the specials. It's a management issue - price the specials the same as the price point on your menu!!!!! Yes, I know there are explanations and exceptions - price the specials same as the price point on your menu!! You guys are too good to pull that little trick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Consistent good food not the typical lasagna type place, this has upper end italian dishes, great veal, chicken and mussels dishes. The dining room was not open that night so we were sent to the bar dining room which was also nice but had tv's going, had nice tables and booths but would prefer the dining room with more ambiance and dimly lit for special occasions. Did not have enough staff, waited quite awhile for our meals and drinks , however the server was hospitable and the bus person was spot on. Have been here a few times before and for New Years Eve, always consistent, have great specials and very friendly, good service. Just this time they had kitchen and bar issues. Will return based on the food and ambiance. Nice outdoor patio.

    My husband and I have been there twice and will go back. We had the veal and eggplant parmigiana both times and they were great. A little too much cheese on the eggplant second time but our waitress Ashley Frye was very accomodating and helpful. She had two other tables of 8 and she was just as accomodating to them. She even gave us a piece of cheesecake for the cheese on the eggplant.

    Our party of four had 5:00 PM dinner reservations. We were greeted upon entering the lobby and immediately seated. It was our second visit in less than a week for us; a FIRST for our friends. Our server was Sam. We have had him as our server twice before. Sam was his usual cordial self. Sam was attentive to questions from the newbies, Our food was delicious. We treated our friends to a glass of wine of their choice and a dessert. We ordered crème brulee with four spoons. It was outstanding!!!

    My husband & I dined at this restaurant for the first time & thoroughly enjoyed it; we will be back. We treated our neighbors to dinner to celebrate their 75th birthday's. We liked the fact that our server did not rush us through our meal; the entrées, which were hot, were not brought to the table until all of us were done with our salads -- I hope this is the norm for the staff at Tutti Santi. Three of us had assorted chicken dishes that were very yummy, my husband had Lasagne Ala Nina which was delish. Our server brought cheesecake to our friends in honor of their birthday's & we also ordered & shared Tiramisu, which was like no other that I have had; the extra calories are definitely worth it! Eat here, you will not be disappointed.

    This was to be a special night for my husbands birthday and it was such a disappointment. All the waitress wanted to do was get us served and out of their. Could care less that I was not happy with my meal, made no special effort when I told her it was a birthday celebration. I believe she made the dinner recommendation only because it was the most costly. Had the calamari appetizer and she recommended the seafood pasta and when I got it, it was full of calamari, gee I just had a plate full of calamari, needless to say I did not eat my meal. Not impressed that your bills tell you what you think you should be leaving for a tip. I tip based on service and the service we received was very poor.

    A party of 8 to celebrate Mom's birthday .Birthday girl and her husband ordered gin and tonics - they arrived, but with seltzer water, not tonic. When waitress finally came back, I explained the situation, she said she would get new cocktails. Those arrived, she left the table before checking to see if they were tasty, and again, no tonic water was in the drink. Mom finally ordered another cocktail, her husband ordered the sangria, only to be told by another wait staff, later, that they were out of sangria....so toasting was a bit awkward, bad drinks, no drinks etc. Food arrived, nice presentation, good flavors, we needed water, had to ask a passing busboy for it... seems like they really could not accommodate us! We felt very neglected.

    First time here and pleasantly surprised. I'm constantly looking for decent restaurants on the West Valley side of town 'cause I'm tired of the Scottsdale scene and this Tutti Santi is decent. Yeah, I know there is one in Scottsdale and Phoenix but this one was so good I doubt I'll go to the others. Anyhow, the antipasto misto (for two) was v. good - would get it again. The pappardelle and pollo della casa were both v. good and would get both of them again. Wait staff was v. good, well-trained, and knowledgeable. Price point was v. good - much better than Arrowhead Grille. You might say thats like comparing apples to oranges and I'd say in terms of higher end restaurants in the West Valley not so much. So, go to Tutti Santi.

    When I travel I enjoy finding a great local restaurant that offers a different experience than I can find at home. Most cities have decent Italian restaurants, but sometimes you need to search to find truly authentic Italian cuisine. Luckily I stumbled across Tutti Santi by Nina while searching online! The food and service was fantastic! My father has been to Italy dozens of times and stated that "the lasagna was the best he has ever had." The cannelloni I ordered was also the best version of the dish I had ever enjoyed. The homemade pasta and sauce had robust flavors, and the dish was not to heavy. A great combination of both northern and southern Italian cuisine. If will definitely return to Tutti Santi on my next visit to Phoenix!

    Our first visit will certainly not be our last. We sat on the bar side of the restaurant and really enjoyed the live music; never interfered with our dinner conversation. Service was impeccable and the food was top notch without an over-the top price tag. We changed an entrée order after the appetizer and the waitress was very accommodating with no delay in the food service. We are thrilled to have discovered this Italian gem on our side of town!

The food was great as always, service was great as well. This is one of our favorite spots, but we could have done w/o the music being so loud. Music was good, just too loud.
